My heroes are changing

September 22nd, 2014

Over the years I have had a number of people I looked up to. I guess you would say heroes in a sense. When I was younger they were sports people who could run, jump or play footy better than any one else.

As I have gotten older, especially approaching middle aged, I have found my heroes have changed from sports people to more every day type of people.

Now I look at men in their 50s to 70s who are strong men of faith as heroes or role models. Men who really follow Christ and try to live it out. Men who love their wife, kids and grand kids and care about others.

They don’t have to be big achievers in a worldly sense, but in a Kingdom sense. They play their part in making the lives of those around them better.

I don’t know if this change of heroes is just part of getting older or it is about becoming more Kingdom minded? But there seems to be a distilling of what is important and worth aspiring too.

How about you? Have your heroes or role models changed over the years?

God Bless,
Dave
